A while back I pointed out that the first few seconds of the Eyes Of The World on DP12 (6/26/74) is actually spliced in from the 6/22/74 show. I just found another splice from the same era.

Listen to the opening seconds of Weather Report from RT 2.3; it is spliced in from the Weather Report on DP12!!! You can hear the splice very clearly.

You mean six seconds in, when the light crowd noise fades away and just before some guy shouts?

I'm incensed! I'm calling them right now to demand a return. I feel so...violated.

I know! It makes me ashamed to be a deadhead.

Nah I just enjoy finding these little sneakarounds, it only comes from listening to so many recordings so much, I can instantly identify when they've done this sort of thing. I'm glad they do it, it's better than having it start a few seconds into the song.

Your obsessiveness is exactly what makes you such a great Deadhead!

oh well, if the original reel can't be used, then a little cheat in to give you an intro ain't too bad of an idea...but maybe say so in the liner notes...
